I’ve had my M3 for 4 years now and I’m about to take it on its second 1000+ mile trip to Yellowstone. The car is comfortable enough for 3 people plus camping gear. It’s a lot of fun in the corners and plenty quick enough for me. It had some rattles but I’ve addressed almost all of them. Makes me smile every time I…
Turbo inline 5 or bust.
Without a doubt they do.
I never really noticed. Depends on what you’re used to it guess.
Yes, but the Type R isn’t sold in the US. Supposedly the next generation will be availible here though.
All of the fake engine sounds in movies. Why not just use the car’s actual sound? Or at least use the right fake one?
Twin Traction beam...very interesting name. I would like to see how a solid front feels compared to this.
Yeah you're exactly right. Most turbo diesel trucks emit more turbo noise than engine noise as well.
We're very lucky that trucks today are no longer only smooth when loaded and are actually easy to drive.
The smoothness makes sense, but quiet it is not. Of course I never compared it to something with DI, but at idle standing above the engine was seriously loud. Yes, tank is an excellent word for it.
I'm not sure about locking the hubs. Using a truck like that sounds terribly exciting.
That sounds dangerously fun.
This is so cool. Looks pretty good so far, best of luck finishing it up.
That supercharger whine is soooo delicious.
You made a great decision.
I'm so jealous of you growing up with BMWs. It's awesome that you snagged one of the last NA ones though. The N52 is supposedly one of the most reliable BMW engines too.
Thanks! Probably the fact that the temperature gauge went below the C (cold) coasting down hills...I feel like the thermostat probably wasn't working right.
The mystery is solved, thanks
